Psychiatric illnesses can create significant risks for those affected. In some cases, these risks are so severe that a mental health residential program is necessary. Many people seek these services when they’re in crisis, but this isn’t a requirement. Intensive programs such as these simply provide services unavailable on outpatient and partial hospitalization (PHP) bases.
Transformations at Mending Fences offers these services in order to better serve our clients. Our residential program offers many of the most important treatments – including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), family programs and medication-assisted therapy. To provide the best treatment possible, though, we also offer experiential and other therapeutic approaches.

Residential programs that offer mental health services provide a vital utility to the American public. Studies have shown that they’re one of the most cost-effective options for individuals willing to accept voluntary treatment. Not all these programs, however, are as equally efficient. Facilities that offer individualized plans often stand out among others.
No two psychological disorders are the same. Individuals who experience trauma, for instance, could deal with acute stress disorder for a month or PTSD for years. This makes it imperative for mental health residential programs to offer treatment plans customized to each client. Research has consistently shown that this is the best approach to healing.
Transformations at Mending Fences recognizes the need for personalized care. That’s why every client relationship starts with our certified staff of professionals discussing individual needs. Prior treatments, common co-occurring disorders, backgrounds (e.g. health, religious, etc.) and existing support systems can all play significant roles in therapeutic approaches.
There is a dynamic relationship between mental health disorders and drug abuse. For some clients, psychiatric illness can occur completely devoid of any addiction. In many cases, though, the two go hand in hand. Each of these issues can result from or cause the other. This makes concurrent treatment essential at any mental health residential program.
Research consistently shows that integrating mental health and substance abuse services increases success rates of treatment. Treating one without dealing with the other almost guarantees future problems. Someone who starts taking heroin to deal with their depression, for instance, will have a high relapse risk without treatment for the latter.
Transformations at Mending Fences offers substance abuse disorder treatment in addition to its many mental health services. Whether you could benefit from a 12-step program or need supervised medical detox, our facilities have the resources to help. Sometimes a mental health residential program needs a broad approach to treatment, and that’s exactly what we offer.
Treating mental health disorders requires a focused approach based on scientific data. Unfortunately, not all residential programs meet this criterion. Cognitive behavioral therapy, for instance, is one of the most effective treatments for certain illnesses. Recent research has shown, though, that less than 60 percent of mental health residential programs offer CBT.
Transformations at Mending Fences understands the importance of providing the best treatments possible. We also recognize, however, that what’s effective for one client may not be effective for another. That’s why we offer a wide variety of traditional mental health therapies common of the best residential programs out there:
These therapies have received wide recognition as important tools for mental health residential programs. Since client needs can vary immensely, though, Transformations at Mending Fences offers less common therapies as well. These include experiential services (e.g. Adventure Therapy), coping skill classes, equine therapy and a variety of other specialty offerings.

Psychiatric disorders come in many forms, and in most cases, they don’t come alone. Comorbid illnesses, drug abuse and other complicating conditions can present hurdles with treatment.
